New Year at New York

I'm back from the trip to NYC, where I went together with my older daughter. It was her dream to meet Miss Liberty, to walk through the strawberry fields at Central Park, to see a show at the Broadway, to make crazy shopping at Fifth Street, and to see the ball falling at Times Square. So we did that all and much more, it was fabulous time for both of us together!
I wasn't expecting to much sketching during this trip, because I didn't wanted to waste too much of our "together time". So most of sketches are done as always during the meals or on taxi. I used Bic multicior ballpoint pen mostly, as a quickest tool, also most useful at such a freezing weather.
subway people - what a perfect place for sketching!
incredible view from Empire State Building
authentic noodles in China Town
crazy shopping
sketching at Rockfeller Center with Melanie Reim!
more ice skaters
at Strawberry Fields
There are some more sketches on my blog.
I loved the Big Apple and definitely would like to come back again for more sketching and not sketching only  :)
